Appalling levels of hunger in East Africa
Based on IPC analysis, 11,035,315 people across Kenya and Somalia are projected to face high levels of acute hunger.
Across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, approximately 31,435,315 people are currently in a food insecurity crisis at level (IPC 3) and above.
As of October 2022, across the three countries, the death rate is estimated to be at least 2,421-880 per day, or between one every 1.6 minutes and 36 seconds.
People's lives have been destroyed by climate crises that they had practically no involvement in creating. After four failed rainy seasons, their livestock has died, their crops have been destroyed, and their ability to cope with famine has failed.
Across these four countries, more than 6 million children face or are currently suffering from acute malnutrition.
Large parts of the region have endured four failed rainy seasons - with a fifth likely in the next three months - as climate change has destroyed crops and forced pastoralists to abandon their traditional way of life. The crisis has been exacerbated in many places by conflicts, the fallout from Covid-19 and rising food prices, partly due to the war in Ukraine.
The situation in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya is rapidly deteriorating. In Somalia, this is the worst hunger crisis in years, with the number of people experiencing acute hunger exceeding the number of people affected by the 2011 famine, when more than 300,000 people died.
People lost their lives, it has gone beyond. Almost one in six people in Somalia face extreme hunger.
